Pete Wentz denies that Ashlee is pregnant

If you have been reading my blogs, then you have seen the one about Ashlee Simpson being pregnant. And now, Pete Wentz is denying the claims.
Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz is crying foul on tabloid news reports that his fiancée Ashlee Simpson is pregnant with their child.
In an e-mail to MTV News, Wentz denied reports by OK! magazine and Us Weekly that he and Simpson, 23, are expecting, calling the whole thing "crazy."
"There is a witch hunt for people to be pregnant whenever they get engaged in Hollywood," he wrote. "This is all news to me. I can't wait for the story about how I'm really in a gay relationship and this is all just a cover. ... I mean really, this is crazy. ... I mean we're engaged, that's true, and happy about it."
Asked again if he was denying reports that Simpson is pregnant, Wentz replied, "Yeah."
The report just days after the couple announced that they were engaged.
Representatives for the 23-year-old performer, the younger sister of actress and singer Jessica Simpson, have not commented on the reports.
Ashlee Simpson has been romantically linked to Wentz, 28, the bassist for the band Fall Out Boy, since 2006.
On Thursday the couple posted a statement at the social networking Web site in which they announced that they would be getting married.
"We are thrilled to share that we are happily engaged. We consider this to be a very private matter, but we wanted you to hear it straight from us," the announcement said.
In addition to her career as a singer, Simpson had a role in the television show "Seventh Heaven." Her new album, "Bittersweet World," is to be released later this month.
Wentz co-founded Fall Out Boy in 2001, and the band, for which he is also the lyricist, has built a loyal following with albums that include 2005's popular "From Under the Cork Tree," which included such hits as "Dance, Dance," and "Sugar, We're Goin Down."
